Poetry Blogs (2017, Aphrodite)
The winds of change are blowing over the hills and storm clouds gather with momentum
For a moment we stand on the bridge
And look at the torrent below us
We observe the destruction caused by the gale
Before taking shelter under the bridge
Like transients we pick meat from a carcass
On a polystyrene tray
I dream of the archer and Aphrodite
Making out to the sound of tubular ...

When I am a sculptor, famed

Founded in this new creation, you and I are quite astounding
Please re-main calm, intense plea...

If fruit juices be the juices of love,
make mine black cherry and strawberry.
Both these delicious flavours must have aphrodisiac
properties that Aphrodite would adore as she lies on her
back with her legs apart, imparting her fragrant breath
to my parched lips as my hips pump my love into her.
Venus in furs might prefer unsweetened lemon and lime
to compliment her primal...
